Hi, this is my Pogonomymex sp Queen. It would be greatly appreciated if someone could give me a species ID. Sorry for the low quality pictures, it is the best I can do while filming through a semi transparent container, into the claustral cell.

Probably too grainy for an ID, unfortunately.

Location and a clearer picture would help. If in US probably P.occidentalis but if you are in the warmer states (ex: California, Florida, etc.) It may be something else.

Nice another Colorado keeper, I would assume Pogonomyrmex occidentalis as that is the most common one here.

Yeah, I’ll take the L on that, but it looks like a glitch. Oof.
